Meet our lead environmental engineer and big-brained genius, Ken Gineer the engineer.
Ken Gineer was born to be an environmental engineer. His father, Sven Gineer, and mother, Jenn Gineer, came to this country with big dreams for their future children. When they left the old country (we’re not sure what country it is, but it’s old!), they brought with them their love of the environment.
From day one, they raised Ken to have respect for the fragile environment around him. They also taught him engineering skills by making him design and assemble his own crib. That might seem a bit odd, but in the old country, every baby built his or her own crib!
So, from his very first Birkenstock-clad steps, Ken Gineer was born to be an environmental engineer. Of course that doesn’t explain his twin brother, Ben Gineer. He’s a pharmacist. Go figure.
Ken and his big environmental brain can answer any question you Ask Verantis!
The air emissions regulations are changing and we need assistance with an engineering evaluation to determine what modifications need to be made to my equipment in order to comply with the new requirements. Can Verantis provide those services?
Yes, Verantis can provide a broad range of engineering services to help you determine what modifications would be required to your equipment and also help you with making the necessary upgrades.
We have a 10+ year old incineration system and we are experiencing considerable down time due to equipment component failures. Can Verantis help us optimize the operation of the equipment and make the necessary adjustments to increase the on-line availability of the system?
Yes, Verantis has over 30 years of experience working with many different types of incineration systems and our engineers and field service personnel can help you evaluate changes to the system to improve the operation and also provide custom retrofit component services tailored to your specific needs and requirements.
We currently use a different style of packing in our scrubbing system and are concerned that if we change the present packing material that we will no longer meet the required performance limitations indicated in our permit. Can Verantis provide the required back-up information to assure that we will continue to meet our air permit requirements?
Yes, Verantis has been providing its Tellerette packing material to an extensive range of applications since 1965 and we can provide both the engineering back-up and a money back guaranty that our packing material will perform to the levels required by your current permit limitations.

It’s a question we hear a lot: When should I change my packing?
That’s a great question! But there is no “one size fits all” answer. Depending on your application and system, it could be as often as every 3 months, or it could be every several years. Here are several indicators that it’s time to change your packing:
You are experiencing a higher pressure drop, your packing may be clogged.
You are experiencing a lower pressure drop, your packing may have settled.
You see debris or fouling during a visual inspection.
You see a change in your plume from the scrubber outlet.
There is chemical degradation from highly concentrated emissions. Inspect for embrittlement, softening, discoloration or thinning of your packing.
There is thermal damage, such as deformation of your packing, discoloration or excessive settling.
You are experiencing a reduction in fan current amp draw.
You find packing in the pump recirculating liquid during a visual inspection.
You find packing below the support plate during a visual inspection.
There is a change in the upstream process, such as higher loading and/or new chemicals.
There is a change in, or a pending change, in regulatory requirements.
So, when should you change your packing? It is a complex question with many variables. When you encounter one or more of the situations on this checklist, it’s time to change your packing.
If you have additional questions about when to change your packing, or if you have encountered a situation not listed here, Ask Verantis.

All wet scrubber designs incorporate mist eliminators or entrainment separators to remove entrained droplets, which contain the contaminants or particulate matter. Verantis offers high performance chevron mist eliminators to remove liquid entrainment from gas streams with removal efficiencies up to nearly 100%.
The most common mist eliminators are chevrons, which are baffles that cause the gas stream to turn several times as it passes through the mist eliminator, causing liquid droplets to collect on the blades of the chevron and drain back into the scrubber.
Our mist eliminators rely on direct compaction combined with centrifugal force to remove liquid entrainment from gas streams. They provide low pressure drops in scrubbers, cooling towers, air washers, gas absorbers, and ventilation systems.
Our high performance chevron mist eliminators help you control your environment:
